Project Description

Ethicon
Cornelia, GA

Mechanical and electrical engineering design services for the upgrade of a central chilled water plant in order to optimize energy consumption in this manufacturing plant. The project included:

▪ Replacement of chillers and addition of a new 650 ton chiller, upgrading the total plant capacity to 1,950 tons.

▪ Conversion of systems to variable primary flow and new energy focused control strategies.

▪ This upgraded central plant incorporated new all-variable control strategies to help achieve maximum operating efficiencies in all conditions.

▪ $2,000,000 construction cost.

This medical device facility, founded in 1946 as a Johnson & Johnson plant, transitioned to Ethicon in 1980, The primary products manufactured in this facility include sutures, needles, meshes, and a number of molded components including screws, clips, anchors, and straps.
